Steve House Steve House proudly announces his campaign for United States Congress from Colorado’s 6th congressional district. A life-long advocate, successful entrepreneur, trained engineer and innovative healthcare expert, House presents a groundbreaking vision of economic development for Aurora that partners with high-tech companies, wealth managers and the federal government to create a boom in new construction, entrepreneurship, advanced education and homeownership. “We are fortunate to live at a moment in history when Colorado is on the verge of a revolution of innovation, entrepreneurship and historic opportunity,” Steve House said. “But to get us there, our leaders must have vision, know how to build bridges, form new exciting partnerships and do much more than conduct slash and burn politics while in Washington.”

Casper Stockham Congressional candidate Charles (Casper) Stockham announced that he plans to take on Jason Crow with a campaign based upon empowerment in the CD6 Congressional District. Stockham says We Must, We Can, and We Will do better! Stockham – “For over 60 years the Democrat Party has exploited the Black and Hispanic community because there has been a void in those communities of any real Republican Party presence as a balance.” Fulfilling a prior campaign promise, “I haven’t left the community,” instead I’ve been in the community working to empower our youth. I believe empowerment is a corner stone for a better community. I believe the homelessness, gentrification, high UN-employment, crime and despair have not come at the hands of the Republican Party but because, in part, the GOP has ignored the Black and Hispanic communities.” Stockham believes this election cycle will produce winning results because he is better abled and positioned to communicate his empowerment message, support local leaders in the community, and carry out his 5-4-3-2-1 Plan.Stockham – “We’re going to reach out to the forgotten and disenfranchised voters, and remind them that new political leaders, who do the biding of the old guard change nothing for the better. Congressman Crow is a new face on an old system that only seeks to control and maintain the status quo. We do not need new leaders we need new DOERS!” We send individuals to represent and serve our interests in Washington D.C. Jason Crow doesn’t represent the diversity of Aurora. He only represents the special interest machine in Washington D.C. It’s time for dynamic new DOERship. See Casper’s website for more details. www.casperforcolorado.com
Mark Wilson Neighbors, I am excited and proud to throw my hat in the ring and announce my candidacy for Greenwood Village City Council. I’m a small business owner, army veteran, and my young family and I love our village. I will run a positive campaign, one in which I will display integrity and honesty in all my interactions and treat all that I encounter with the utmost respect. It will be a great privilege to serve my community on City Council. I will do so by listening openly to the concerns of all our community members with the goal of not simply maintaining what we have, but building a better Greenwood Village, one that thrives economically and maintains that “small town” feel in our neighborhoods.
